    Joe Viola, Phil Woods, Ramond Ricker, Donald Sinta and Sigurd Rascher. The ones I know of....I'm sure the guys I studied with studied with many more.

    BUZZZ!! Not a random sample. Participants self-selected for the survey. But, you can believe whatever you want. There are NO rules of induction.

    A whole bunch of others: 1 each

    From this somewhat random sample, I suspect Joe Allard is the most influential saxophone teacher of all time.
    But keep in mind that Hemke, Londeix, Deffayet, and Rousseau all studied with Mule, which would seem to make him the most influential teacher in this limited, non-scientifically-derived list.

    I'm an amateur player from Switzerland. I studied for some time with alto player George Robert whose main teachers were Phil Woods and foremost Joe Viola, when George studied at Berklee. At my first lesson, George cited Joe Viola: "A saxophone is about SOUND!"

    My current band directors are Mark Greer and Richard Anderson. I've actually met their high school directors (they are judges for a scholarship the program gives every year). I do know that my directors were students of Larry Teal in college.

    Mark Greer also went to Arizona University, where he was under Gregg Hanson (I think). Greer taught at the University of South Dakota, too. (I'm very lucky to have some pretty talented directors).

    I agree with you, Scott Plugge is my Grand- Teacher. He was my teacher in CT and then he moved back to TX (Sam Houston State University). I moved to TX to continue my studies with him. Any students in the Houston area looking for a teacher to study jazz or classical with should give him a call.

    I guess that makes my true Grand -Teacher Hemke to.

    Well, I studied with Eugene Rousseau and Michael Hester, so that means my "grand teachers" are Marcel Mule, Larry Teal, Donald Sinta, and Jean-Marie Londeix. I also took a few lessons with Elizabeth Ervin and Jan Faidley, but they are also Rousseau types.

    I studied with Vince Gnojek and Greg Briggs in high school, so that means my other "grand teacher" is Harvey Pittel...I don't play the sopranino though...

    Come to think of it, I also studied with Bill Caldwell and Kevin Mahogany in jazz in high school. (Yes, THAT Kevin Mahogany. He's a singer, but I studied with him for theory.) I need to find out who Caldwell studied with because he's Kansas City's answer to Michael Brecker.


    I never realized that I had so much "American" school training. Huh. I also never realized that I've had so many teachers!


    My wife has the best one though...she can trace her piano lineage back to Beethoven!

    And I believe he took from Mule, too.

    Default Missing Grand Teachers

    Well, my teacher is Anton Scwartz. I'm going to have to do some detective work to find out who taught him
